• Squadron Band

    The Squadron Maintains a very active pipe band. If you have a talent for music, or you would like to try something new, then why not try the band?

  • Flying

    If you want to learn to fly, then the air cadets is the best place to start. Not only do we train you in avation studies, and get you flying but you can also go on flying scholarships that count towards a private pilots licence.

  • Gliding

    Have you ever wanted to try one of the simplest forms of flying? The Air Cadets sends hundreds of young people gliding every year, and with a Gliding Scholarship you can fly solo at in a glider at the age of 16! Even before you can drive!

History of the ATC

The Air Training Corps (ATC) was formed by Royal Warrant in 1941 and sprang from the Air Defence Cadet Corps, founded in 1938 by the Air League. Although initially formed to meet the needs of a nation at war, the Corps continues to thrive as it enters the 21st Century. There are now independent Air Cadet Organizations in many other countries throughout the World.

Today it continues to thrive and helps a new generation of young people, aged 13 to 22, to find a positive purpose in life. With almost 49,000 members, aged from 13 to 20 years, within over 1,000 Squadrons, the ATC is one of the country's premier youth organizations and the world's largest youth air training organization. The Cadets are supported by a volunteer Staff of nearly 10,000 plus 5,000 Civilian Committee Members.
